d30-taurus 150 150 John Sandbach

* Taurus-30


Degree Angel: Mitzrael (MITS-ra-EL) Freedom, Internal Reparation, Transforming/Inspired




Omega Symbol: Beings from many dimensions attracted to an immense white flame.


You sense a pure, central force radiating through the whole universe, and though you may not conceive of it consciously in these cosmic terms, your attitude communicates the feeling that nothing is by itself important, that everything is important in its highest spiritual context, and that we are all truly one, traveling in the same direction toward the white flame of enlightenment.


Pleiadian Symbol:   Strange exotic birds have gathered at the ruins of an old palace.


Palaces fall into ruin, cities decay and pass away, as do whole cultures; but the strange and exotic birds, which are our souls, continue to live and thrive and to witness the phantasmagoria of all this passing karma.  We are all continuing to learn how to give up all the heavy and oppressive products of the ego so that we can claim our freedom and fly free.  You appreciate the beauty of all this and the complex and lustrous patina of memories it creates.


Chandra Symbol: Snakes at rest on a rock in the sun.


The highest part of us all is attracted to the spiritual light, just as the snakes collect to enjoy the light and warmth of the sun. Snakes symbolize wisdom, and wisdom, or truth, attracts more wisdom and truth. This degree is indescribably rich, the question is, can the person who has this in their chart accept all this, for the only way to contain it is to let go of limits and surrender to the infinite.


There is an ability here to connect to any and all past lives, for these are what we HAVE (Taurus’ verb is “I have”). As this degree releases itself from all caught and stuck places in these pasts it eventually can come into and share the vast fortune that is the summary of Taurus.


Azoth Symbol:   A yellow diamond in a setting which depicts both the Sun and Moon.


Innate knowledge that the conscious and unconscious, the yin and the yang, combine to form a higher, totally synthesized meaning and purpose.  You accept everything the way it is and you appreciate the fact that no matter how much anybody tries to categorize, explain or label anything that all of life eludes ultimate definition, for all of it lives at the heart of the mystery of its own uniqueness.  This is the ultimate appreciation of the beauty of manifest reality.


Seed Degree: Pisces – 20


A truck stop specializing in Gnostic texts. (Omega Symbol). We break through all barriers that divide separate realities, and enter into a deep, timeless and transcendent sharing of the light with all beings.


A perfect black cube sits alone in the desert. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing our containment and isolation in a non-supportive environment, we transcend it to enter into an interdimensional communication with a vast array of consciousnesses.


Fulfillment Degree: Pisces – 5


Dyers at work with many vats of different colors. (Omega Symbol). From the pure white flame of spirit we extract the many beautiful vibrations with which to serve all needs and delight the world.


Thousands of gold nuggets glistening at the bottom of a clear stream. (Chandra Symbol). Knowing of the riches that are strewn everywhere along are path, we are able to be at peace and bask in the passing, temporal light.


Omega Oracle


Do all these beings from far-flung places come to visit the flame because they are cold? Or because they crave its light? Doubtful. More probable is that the flame is a place of meeting, a nexus of clarity, just as white is the meeting place of colors.


See how each being merges with the flame, and then emerges from it clearer and brighter, ready to return to its home.


And see, too, at the top of the flame those sputtering shadows emanating from the tip, like a foreboding gas – I wouldn’t look at those strange colors if I were you – as the flame’s blinding, acidic purity carries on its process of digestion.
